On our way to the south of France we stayed one night at the fantastic hotel Villa Florentine on a package deal called "Invitation gourmande". This included a set menu called "Aux saveurs ltaliennes" at the one (Micheline) star restaurant at Villa Florentine; Les Terrasses de Lyon.
Unfortunately the weather wasn't at it's best the evening we dined at the restaurant, so the dining took place inside, instead of outside on the terrace. We never the less had an unforgettable evening in the pleasant ambience of the restaurant. The staff is very skilled, helpfull and attentive, and the sommelier did an excellent job, helping us select the perfect wines suitable to our taste, menu and wallet.
We had an "gastronomic overload" this day, first having lunch at Paul Bocuse, and then having dinner at Les Terrasses de Lyon in the evening. It was very interesting to experience the different approach at these restaurants, with Paul Bocuse's overwhelming and excessive style, while Davy Tissot at Les Terrasses de Lyon showed an extremely elegant, detailed and refined approach in the "Aux saveurs ltaliennes" menu. In our view, the evening at Les Terrasses de Lyon was just as big a culinary experience as our lunch at Paul Bocuse. While enjoying our coffe and tea after dessert, Davy Tissot appeared at our table and we had a really pleasant chat with him. We found this to be a very nice touch.
We have decided that we have to return to Villa Florentine and Les Terrasses de Lyon, and hopefully enjoy an evening outside on the terrasse with Davy Tissots's elegant creations - while enjoying the lovely view of Lyons old city.
